Growlers

What is a “Growler” anyway?  A growler is a glass, ceramic, or stainless steel jug used to transport beer purchased at a local craft brewery.  Growlers are pretty neat for a lot of reasons, including the fact it’s refillable, which means your carbon footprint is smaller than those import beer drinkers!  That’s cool like Fonzie and you’re helping the environment!  The beer is also really fresh because it’s filled right where we make it.  We understand that sometimes you just can’t beat the convenience of a can (think camping!), but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our 473ml format cans. Unlike that sad house plant you don’t even remember you have, you have to remember that this your own personal Growler to keep and care for.  Give it a name if you wish.  That’s so cute isn’t it?

Here are 3 steps to ensure your beer stays brewery fresh:
STEP 1: drink it.
Of course we don’t pasteurize or add preservatives to our beers so keep your Growler refrigerated and enjoy within 1 week of purchase and within 48 hours of opening.  We can’t imagine this rule will be hard to follow.
STEP 2: clean it.
After use, make sure you clean your growler right away.  It’s really simple.  Rinse your growler and cap with nice hot water 3 to 4 times.  Let your growler air dry upside down.  If you rinse your growler right away, there is no need for mild dish soaps or detergents.  Once dry it should be free of any odors or perfumes.
STEP 3: just in case…
If your growler smells like a dirty dish rag or your hockey bag you have a small problem!  You will need to do a thorough cleaning of your growler with a diluted bleach water or at least dish soap.  Make sure to do a very thorough rinsing after using detergents in the growler.  Once dry it should be free of any odors or perfumes.

Don’t let this Cream Ale fool you. This pre-prohibition Cream Ale is a smooth full flavored Ale that will appeal to your casual craft beer drinker and to craft beer lovers.

With 4 malts and a blend of 4 hops, including Sarachi Ace and Bravo, this Cream Ale is really how Cream Ale used to be. That’s how we roll! Expect the un-expected from Bell City Brewing.

Lenoir Belgian Ale

Beer in Belgium dates back to the first crusades when local abbeys brewed beer as a fund raising method. The artisanal brewing methods evolved over centuries and became popular with Master Brewers and beer drinkers around the world. Our premium ingredients and brewing methods are sure to impress the monks. Golden in colour, Lenoir has classic Belgian fruity aroma with a slight sweetness and very little bitterness. Lenoir is a smooth and sessionable Belgian style beer. Enjoy!

Session IPA

When it comes to filling growlers, our customers have crowned this beer a favourite! Pouring a slightly hazy straw with white head, Bell City’s Sessions IPA meets the nose with a blast of pine, mango, pineapple and lychee. The first sip opens however with soft and pillow notes of puffed cereal and bread, before the citrus and resin flavors of the hops make themselves known. Its bitterness is kept reigned in for an IPA, making it a sessionable beer, but with enough flavor and aroma to stand out amongst the crowd. Enjoy the full flavour and aroma of Session IPA’s 4-hop blend.

  • (18 IBU, 4.8% alc/vol)
  • Colour: Hazy straw
  • 4-hop blend brings bold delicious flavour. Wonderfully aromatic.

This light bodied, smooth beer was crafted with summer in mind! Fresh ginger, orange zest and coriander have been delicately combined and balanced to produce an intensely refreshing experience. Forget what your friends are drinking; this beer’s refined taste, appearance and aroma were crafted to impress.

  • (13 IBU, 4.8% alc/vol)
